Ep. 141: The Secret Sauce for Content Marketing with John D. Saunders

Content marketing has been around for a long time and has been proven to drive awareness, engagement, and conversion for many businesses. And with the rise of social media, content marketing has become easier for entrepreneurs and marketers. The challenge, however, is consistently creating compelling content and figuring out what resonates with an audience.  


John D. Saunders started using mini-blogs on Twitter and then re-purposing the content for Instagram. This strategy worked well as he actually started by listening to his Facebook Group on the topics and information they wanted to learn more about. John is a digital marketing strategist and the Founder of 5Four Digital and BlackWalletorg. He shares the key steps to create great content, identify key topics, develop a content calendar and scale your social media followers. In addition, he serves up a ton of digital marketing resources to aid in content development and marketing.
